Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Earl Harry "Dutch" Clark (October 11, 1906 - August 5, 1978) was an American professional football player for the Detroit Lions in the National Football League. In his final two seasons he was the Head Coach of the Detroit Lions. At Colorado College, he was a member of Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity. He set a team rushing record in 1936 that stood for 36 years. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1963. Dutch Clark began his football career at center as a freshman at Central High School in Pueblo, Colorado, circa 1922. Coach Oscar "Ollie" Herigstad reassigned young Clark to fullback, where he earned All-State honors for the Wildcats. At Central, he was also an All-State basketball center, and set South-Central League track & field records in the discus and high hurdles. Baseball was his "weak" sport, on account of impaired vision in his left eye. He earned 16 letters, and graduated in 1926.show more
